Assignment B

 

Case Detail: 

There have been periods in which a product has got difficulty because of loss of favour with the public, bad management or even neglect. Attention of the sales Vice President to the problems of the some products has caused him, at times, to fail to recognise difficulties in others even though the product manager of such products has recognised them and had brought them to his attention.  The burden on present officers is becoming so heave to ensure proper attention to all their responsibilities. Employment of assistants appearaently causes loss of the close touch of the top group that is necessary to ensure success.   Opportunities for increasing the line of products and expanding the business are being lost because of the lack of time among the executives to study them or manage new products. In any business where specialists sold under trade mark brands are the major business of a company. It is necessary for that company to continually bring out new products and to study old ones to determine, in their case , the point of no return with regard to promotion and advertising expenses. Once the top executive group has approved the idea of a new product, is is put under the responsibility of one of the Vice- Presidents. He developes an organisation and brings it along, at least, the advertising appropriate for the product, accounting and public relations. Top executives conclude that Modern Corporation has a problem of organisation.

 2.        What changes do you recommend to be made in the company’s organisation structure?
